Slovenia, Ljubljana Guide (B): Things You Need to Experience in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana, Slovenia, was one of my favorite stops on my month-long trip around Eastern Europe & the Balkans. I flew to Munich and caught a bus from the main bus station to Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia. I was originally only going to spend 2 nights in the city during my backpacking trip, but I am so glad that I changed my itinerary to have extra time here.

It’s absolutely beautiful, I wish I would have planned my trip to have one overnight here to get a little more time to swim in the lake and sunbathe on the shores. The town itself is rather expensive, as there aren’t a lot of options for restaurants and bars, but you can get a really good meal with an unbelievable view. It is a nice place for people to visit if you want a beach vacation without having to deal with salt water and sand.

This was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been! It was a collection of pools in a river of the gorge. Get there EARLY as the crowds start to build around noon. We arrived early and didn’t have to wait very long to get a ticket. We walked from Lake Bled, but you could take a shuttle.
